Abstract

The effect of carotid occlusion on cerebral blood flow (CBF), brain plasma volume for sucrose (Vplsuc), and unidirectional transport of glucose from blood to brain was measured in four regions of gerbil brain. Unilateral common carotid artery occlusion caused a variable decrease in CBF to the ipsilateral cerebral cortex and basal ganglia, with no change in CBF to the contralateral structures; cerebellum, or brainstem. One hour of bilateral carotid artery occlusion reduced flow to near zero in the cerebral cortex and to 30% of control in the basal ganglia, while increasing CBF to the cerebellum and brainstem. There was a significant decrease in the Vplsuc of the cerebral cortex and basal ganglia after 1 h of ischemia, perhaps due to compression of the intravascular space by edema fluid. Blood-to-brain glucose transport, 1 min after release from 1 h of bilateral carotid occlusion, was decreased in the cerebral cortex and basal ganglia, but not in the cerebellum or brainstem. These data indicate that 1 h of complete or incomplete ischemia reduces the rate of unidirectional glucose transport from blood to brain.

Blood Brain Barrier

The blood brain barrier is a border that separates blood from cerebrospinal fluid. Discover the latest search on this highly selective semipermeable membrane here.

Alzheimer's Disease: Endosomes

The feed focuses on the role of dysfunctional endosomal trafficking in Alzheimer’s Disease and the potential for targeting the endosome as a therapeutic target.

Carotid Artery Diseases

Carotid artery disease is a group of pathological conditions of the carotid artery. Discover the latest research on carotid artery disease here.

Blood Brain Barrier Chips

The blood brain barrier (BBB) is comprised of endothelial cells that regulate the influx and outflux of plasma concentrations. Lab-on-a-chip devices allow scientists to model diseases and mechanisms such as the passage of therapeutic antibodies across the BBB. Discover the latest research on BBB chips here.

Basal Ganglia

Basal Ganglia are a group of subcortical nuclei in the brain associated with control of voluntary motor movements, procedural and habit learning, emotion, and cognition. Here is the latest research.

Brain Ischemia

Brain ischemia is a condition in which there is insufficient blood flow to the brain to meet metabolic demand. Discover the latest research on brain ischemia here.
